Dependable, high quality work, and reasonable prices. They were 15 minutes early for our scheduled appointment. They installed our new Delta Touch kitchen faucet and we LOVE IT. My wife said she loves it more than me because when she's making hambuger patties and her hands are greasy, all she has to do is "Touch" the faucet with her elbow without getting the hambuger grease on the handle. Thank you Rick's Plumbing for suggesting the BEST kitchen faucet we've ever owned. We never knew that Delta had a lifetime warranty and would replace it if something ever happened to it. GREAT PLUMBING CO AND FABULOUS DELTA KITCHEN FAUCET!!! WIN WIN !!

Their billing practice is unacceptable. They charged $25 service charge because I didn't pay bill in 10 days. I paid within 30 days - which is how every other business I've worked with bills.

Listen to "Ripoff." By all means, get a written estimate. I was ripped off, too. I can only assume that the work done was quality. But once I realized how they had ripped me off price-wise, I have decided to bring in an Oxford, Ms., inspector to make sure it is done correctly. I will post again if I learn of poor-quality work.

Told me they'd be here at 1, but didn't get here until 2. They were here 5 minutes and was going to charge me $107 to tell me that my fish tank was leaking!!! Really?? I ended up paying $75 because I told him that it was not right. I could understand having to pay for the cost their gas if I lived far away, but I don't. Ripped me off! Unless your willing to watch your money being flushed down the toilet, I would highly suggest calling someone else.
Tips & Advices
Keep the following tips in mind:
  • Do not operate any electrical equipment while sitting or standing in water.
  • Don't overload extension cords or surge protectors.
  • Put caps on your electrical outlets if you have small children.
  • Call an electrician if you notice your sockets or switches are warm to the touch, discolored or if they make noise.
  • Keep electrical cords away from stoves, ovens and other sources of heat.
  • Do not use an appliance that has a frayed cord.
  • Do not staple extension cords into place or cover them with carpets or furniture.
  • When using extension cords, make sure to unwrap them before plugging them in.
  • Don't overuse extension cords. Have an electrician install extra outlets if you need a power source closer to you.
  • Only use light bulbs with the correct wattage for your lamps and light fixtures.
  • Contact a licensed electrician if you frequently blow fuses, since this can be a sign of an electrical wiring problem.
  • Have an electrician look at your fuse box to ensure you have the right size fuses and circuit breakers. The wrong size fuse or breaker can be a fire hazard.
  • If you have fault circuit interrupters installed in your electrical panel, make sure you test them at least once a month by turning them on and off.
It can cost from $40-$100 an hour depending on the job. This does not include additional costs for parts or trip fees. Make sure to ask in advance what they charge for or if they will provide a free quote.
In order to become a full-fledged professional, a person must undergo an apprenticeship with master and journeyman electricians. An apprentice needs 8,000 hours of practical work before graduating to the journeyman level. If an apprentice reaches journeyman status, he or she can complete most electrical work, but cannot design it until completing more testing along with 2,000 more on-the-job hours.
Yes. While all electricians need a license, not all of them do the same types of jobs.
  • Outside: These types of electricians work outdoors on electrical lines that connect to power plants.
  • Inside: Inside experts typically focus on commercial and industrial buildings that require a lot of power.
  • Residential: Residential electricians work with low-voltage systems and wiring to install fuse boxes and light fixtures.
Watch out for contractors that greatly underbid other electricians. If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is. Also, always remember to get the estimate in writing before settling on a company.
